Signs are good for school’s latest fundraising project
Pupils excited to learn from deaf pop star Fletch
The school is taking part in sign2sing, a fundraising event organised by Beaconsfield-based Deaf Health Charity SignHealth for children in the UK and Uganda
The school received a special visit from deaf pop star Fletch, who taught year five children the song and signs.
They children will now be passing on their new skills to fellow pupils in preparation for sign2sing, which takes place between February 1-7.
Headteacher, Elizabeth Underwood, said: “The children were really excited to meet Fletch and picked up the song and signs really quickly. With the help of the year five pupils and the wonderful resources provided by sign2sing, the other children at the school should soon be just as good.
“The school has taken part in sign2sing in previous years so we know that it is a fun way to raise funds for a really important cause. The children really enjoy getting involved, you can see their confidence grow as they learn the song and signs.”
